    LOS ANGELES - A mistrial was declared Wednesday in the murder case against Phil Spector when the jury reported that it was deadlocked 10-2 in favor of convicting the music producer of killing actress Lana Clarkson more than four years ago. The prosecutor's office announced it would seek to retry Spector, and the family of the actress also pledged to press on.

    "We will not rest until justice is done," said John C. Taylor, a lawyer for the family.
    Spector and his wife, Rachelle, left the courthouse shortly after the mistrial. The producer's attorneys later met with the jury.
    "We thank the people of Los Angeles for keeping an open mind and the jury for their very hard work and their willingness to share their thoughts with us," defense attorney Linda Kenney-Baden said after the meeting.

    The mistrial came after months of a trial in which jurors had to decide who pulled the trigger of a revolver — leaving no fingerprints — that went off in Clarkson's mouth early Feb. 3, 2003. The jury had met for about 44 hours over 12 days since getting the case Sept. 10.
